I will try to describe to you in simple terms here. There are a series of screws you will see on the bottom of the lap top. There screws have to be removed all of them before proceeding to clean the computer further. You will also see approx: 3 small screws under the battery when you remove the battery these screws are for the plate that goes across that has the power button etc. Remove those as well then remove the plate and the keyboard be sure to remember where all the screws go back to.
Now the keyboard may need to be replaced it sounds like it was a device that did not make it through the coffee spill and the drying process. There will also be one or two small screws that hold the keyboard down you will see those once you remove the power button plate. Remove those screws carefully take a small screw driver and push the holder for the keyboard cable clip to unlock the clip to remove the cable be very gentle when doing this removal. Observe how it came apart and this will be how to re-install a new keyboard.
You can get new keyboards at this is where I get them at. The process once you get into it and be extremely careful is not that difficult to do as you begin to expose the case pieces once apart. Do not use any wet fluids to clean the parts with. Dry clean only using a soft cloth and take your time.
Enjoy and have fun with it I find it rather interesting more so than a desktop PC repair. Thanks for using FixYa! Do not forget to vote for me John

I have spilled water on my laptot and the keyboard doesn't work anymore. I have connected an external keyboard now however, I cant switch on the wireless capability. Does anyone know a way to do t


There may be a switch on the side of the laptop that turns the wireless on and off. Also try pressing and holding the fn key and pressing and releasing f1 or f2. The water spill may have killed the wireless card also. If you still can't get it working, then purchase an inexpensive usb wireless adapter. This will plug into an available usb port and will give you wireles capabilities. You will need to replace the keyboard as well as it was obviously damaged by the spill. Check on ebay, or contact the manufacturer for a replacement.

Hope this helps!

How to activate the wireless option in Asus X59GL


If it has wireless capability

it may be FN+F2

so press the blue FN key bottom left of keyboard plus the F8 as in no 8 key at the top

some asus laptops have a slide or push wireless key but that is normally on or around the keyboard and it should have a little picture on or beside the key that looks like a little satellite

good luck

My MSI A6200 keeps saying wireless capability turned off, yet it works when I plug it directly in to my cable source. I've already hit Fn + F8 keys and turned on. What do i do to get it to work wireless?

you have to set the wireless device you want to communicate with in the router by MAC address /or by name.
log into to router and locate the device and allow it in the wireless setup.

What combination of keys will switch on my wireless capability?

When it says to press the FN key and the F2 key it means that there is a particular key with the letters FN on it, press this key and the F2 key at the same time to turn on and off the wireless. ITS NOT THE F AND THE N KEY , ITS THE FN KEY.
